Once you worked you way up to the largest ship, the control buttons at the bottom of the screen doesn't work!

The buttons control the bow thruster instead of the rudder. And there should also be buttons for the bow thruster separately.

The '0' button does centre both the bow thruster and the rudder at once, but still the ship is almost uncontrollable.

(iPhone 3G running os 3.1)

I will check it, I thought thebow comes to the left and right rudder control and the rudder midel buttons are kept.
YOu can also use the large view and then the line to control the bow trhuster meanwhile.

Maybe I add a feature using a multitouch to have them seperated again.

I now figured out how the controls work. And it is actually usable, although a little confusing.

The p++ and s++ buttons control the bow thruster, and the port and stbd buttons control the rudder.

I used the ++ button always, as I found this easiest. And in the smaller ships this just gives you the max. rudder to either side.

Now I am controlling the biggest ship with no problem. And it is as if the Amiga was never sold Smile Thanks for a great iPhone conversion.

I will probably rename the s++ ... when this modus is active that might help.

I can not control my ships at all, it seems the time expires before I can do anything.
Exept in the radar-mode, there everything works ok.

In/out of port, reefs, rafts, icebergs etc, they all time out instanly, leaving a message like this "We haven't got all day. You are blocking the fairway! Atug tows you to safe waters. Charges: Million $ 0.2"

Very frustrating...
Good game though, havent played this in years (I am 40 now) but it is still amazingly addictive.
